Thursday 17TH January – Moonbeats Asia x Tuff Club Present Flamingosis (US) – From 11PM To 3AM
Moonbeats Asia and TUFF CLUB collaborate to host Flamingosis from the United States. The New Jersey based producer’s rise through the myriad of beat producers throughout the Soundcloud era included a free download on Singapore’s Darker Than Wax label with Money, alongside Enayet in 2016. Flamingosis’s Flight Fantastic album released in July 2018 is a soulful offering that draws influences from vintage funk and disco with a modern beat producer’s twist – with low slung beats pushing what a post-J Dilla artiste such as Flying Lotus would whip up in the studio. It’s been awhile since such infectious beats have been showcased in the city island, and Tuff Club is all the better for a down tempo vibe on a Thursday night.
Friday 18TH January – Nightcap: City Pop and Asian Boogie – From 7PM To 12 Midnight
Since the last outing at White Label Records, vinyl selector Itch continues to push the sound of ‘city pop’ and gems of rare funk and boogie from Asia with a new event at the hip record store and bar titled Nightcap. This style of music from yesteryear is bound to fill your ears with a collection of electric city vibrations to go along with White Label’s decent menu of cocktails, spirits and beers. This time the records store’s own selectors will join Itch for your pre-game listening session on a Friday night on Ann Siang Hill.
